Of Lawsuits and Licensing: The Full Microsoft v. Android Story


While Apple, Inc.'s (AAPL) noisy legal vendetta [1][2][3][4] [5][6][7][8] [9][10][11] against Google Inc.'s (GOOG) world-leading Android operating system has generating headlines due to Apple's desire to ban its competitor, Microsoft Corp.'s (MSFT) own legal battle against Android has gone underreported and largely misunderstood.
